The Phoenix Business Journal recently published their annual Top 10 Family-Owned Businesses list for this year, listing out the top locally owned businesses in order of the number of local employees.

Combined, these five locally owned businesses are responsible for over 7,000 local jobs across Arizona. It is important to remember that job creation can come from right inside Arizona's own borders. When we support Arizona's homegrown businesses and create more demand for their goods and services, they will hire local Arizonans to further meet those needs! It goes to show that local job creation rests right in our hands.
